i have some major late breaking karaoke news for you. steven tyler announced a few hours ago he will not return to "american idol" for this fall season. he put out a statement today that said i strayed from my first lover aerosmith, i've got two fists in the air and i'm kicking the door open with my band. it sounds like he might be leaving "american idol" to take karate lessons. i'm surprised by this. i don't understand how anyone leaves that job. we'll give you $20 million a year to just sit at a table and go i just wasn't feeling it for 12 weeks. but he left. steven tyler will no longer be a judge on "american idol" and return to his true passion beb bebazdazzling women's pants. i wonder who they'll get to replace him. is there anybody left?
i'll miss that old lady. i really am. i'll miss the steven tyler creepy leer of the night. >> tell us about yourself a little bit. >> i'm a volleyball player. >> jimmy: up in heaven now. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: here is somebody that the "idol" producers might want to take a look at robert blake. he was accused and acquitted of killing his wife back in 2001. he just published a memory called "tales of a rascal, what i did for love." because when he was a little kid, he was on "little rascals." but last night he went on the piers morgan show to promote it. he got very upset when asked about the murder charges which aren't mentioned in his book. >> i made a deal to come here and talk about anything in the book. i excused you from that deal because i thought you were going to be cool. now you're trying to drive it into [ bleep ] and i don't know why. >> i'm not trying to drive anything into the ground. >> you're foolish. >> i'm not trying to drive anything in the ground.
i'm asking you questions about what i presumed to be a very important moment in your life. you written a book about your life. >> i written a book about my life. i didn't write a book about that night and i didn't write a book about bonnie. now you can stay there for the rest of your life if you want to. i'm telling you you're starting to look silly. >> jimmy: he looked silly? [ laughter ] you're the one dressed like you're going to an audition for the sequel to "magic mike." the interview went on, robert blake got madder and madder. it reminded me of bugs bunny and yosemite sim. we thought it would be fun to take the audio from that interview and combine it with the video from the cartoon and we were right. >> i want to get to the truth if i can. >> you want to get to the truth, if you can? does that mean i'm lying to you? >> i don't know. are you in. >> what the [ bleep ] matter with you. >> it's not about me, is it? >> yes, it is. because you owned that door, charlie potatoes. i'm not going to sit here and
let you or anybody else kick the [ bleep ] out of me without defending myself. if you want to show me the door, that's fine too. >> i'm not interested in doing that. >> we better start talking about the little rascals. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: after the interview for some reason, our local news here in l.a. went to robert blake's condo, i guess to talk to him about it. i don't know what their plan was going in, but the result was some of the finest local news reporting this american has ever seen. >> blake now lives in this apartment complex. he reportedly declared bankruptcy after his criminal and civil trial. tonight he went to his home and made several attempts to talk to him. there was no response. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you know, we would have believed you if you just told us he didn't answer the door. thanks for the exclusive.
speaker of the house john boehner, i love a guy that doesn't disappoint. he was part of a ceremony awarding a gold medal to an italian artist. once again he cried. there he is starting to get choked up. this is not a guy he knew. here he is wiping his eye. with a handkerchief. this artist died more than 100 years ago. here he is blowing his nose. nancy pelosi next to him. she would have cried too but she had her tear ducts removed years ago. apparently boehner was moved by this artist's paintings. imagine crying about paintings, he is not looking at the paintings. what happens when he listens to adele? john boehner cries a lot. here he is crying at a college commencement speech, election results, watching party that he won. this is i think just after the
last episode of "desperate he's super tan. he cries. he drinks. he should be speaker of the jersey shore house. menopausal oompa loompa. and it's brings the toys to little girls. >> who did you bring? >> i brought boehner baby. >> the soft sensitive baby doll that cries real tears. >> oops, boehner baby spilled the tea. >> oh, no, he's crying. >> boehner baby cries until you calm him down. >> don't cry, boehner baby. it's okay. it was an accident. >> he's the leaker of the house. >> what is hell is wrong with him? stop crying.
>> be quiet. >> boehner baby, everything makes him cry. >> available at walgreens. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: the 43rd annual san diego convention center today. comicon. good luck finding a boba fete costume this weekend. they're out. i made 100,000 people who attend comicon this year. it's a huge locker stuffed with nerds. they say -- they're predicting this will be the largest collection of asthma inhalers in the world. if your wondering where your i.t. guy is tomorrow, odds are he's in san diego dressed up like hell boy. nasa just made a big announcement. they discovered previously
recorded fifth moon orbiting pluto. it has five moons where we have just the one. i feel like nasa knows about all the moons in the universe already. they discover one every six to nine months. just to stay relevant. same way the kardashians do with weddings, to keep themselves in the news. the discovery reignited the debate whether pluto considered a planet. it got demoted from planet to dwarf planet. i thought that was a bad move. it's not fair we call it a dwarf planet. we call snooki a person, right? this is interesting. funeral home in south carolina is adding a starbucks. the robinson funeral home will sell coffee and coffins at their establishment. which is great. because now instead of being sad that your grandma died, you can be angry that you just paid $5 for a cup of coffee. sooner or later starbucks will find a way to open coffee shop in hell. satan will enjoy his first iced macchiato.
there's a very strange new parking policy being enforced in a german town. called free bird. the mayor there has reserved certain narrow parking spots specifically for male drivers. the mayor whose name is stroebear, men are better at parking and so the spots are for them only. i'm guessing the mayor is single. he said he believes the smaller spaces is will be a tourist attraction for ambitious drivers or for anybody who leads an extraordinarily dull life. obviously some people are calling this policy sexist, the mayor says he hopes to, quote, challenge political correctness. he even shot a tsa to get people behind him. >> i'm the mayor. i'm here to announce a new parking spot. some spaces are too difficult for women to squeeze into, from now on, these will be known as man spaces. this is a man space.
and this is a man space. is this a man space? >> no. parking in a man space is a challenging business. it takes a man's character and a man's delicate touch. sometimes you have to oil it up and other times you must jam it in. women are forbidden to enter a man's space. man spaces are for men only. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, look at this. welcome. what is hell is going on? you don't speak english, do you? hello. where are you from? >> i'm from austria. but don't worry.
>> jimmy: okay. i don't know what you said. but i heard the word governor, so i assume it's an arnold schwarzenegger reference. are you here visiting him? >> no. i hit the beer garden in houston. and then to see you. >> of course you do. >> jimmy: it's wonderful to have you here and thank you for wearing your harn esz. wearing your harness. [ cheers and applause ] there's a beer garden in houston. you don't get that in mix coe, do you? rarely. it's thursday night. it is time now for our weekly tribute to the fcc where we bleep and blur things whether they need it or not. it is this week in unnecessary censorship. enjoy. [ cheers and applause ] >> the national league winning for the third straight year behind brilliant pitching and big giant [ bleep ]. >> there's such a chemistry between us it's hard to talk. we always want to kiss each
other. it feels great. >> we will work to cover purpose. i will [ bleep ] your [ bleep ]. >> 911. what you are reporting? >> i have five [ bleep ]. >> you are the next bachelor? >> that is as true as me [ bleep ] kim dar dashan. >> the last couple of months we haven't been able to see this [ bleep ] at all. >> it's illegal to [ bleep ] these bears. >> could this be adolph hitler's car and if so, what the [ bleep ] is it doing here in new jersey? >> wow. look at all these [ bleep ] >> let's hope swiper find his [ bleep ] bunny. >> so i can have a sleep over at grandma's house. >> please, god, someone [ bleep ] me before dark. >> serena williams, champion of the wimbledon again.
[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we have a good show you tonight. fred williard is here. we have music from grace potter & the nocturnals, and we'll be right back with bill crudup. so stick around. [ cheers and applause ] get your cash back! oh, hi. which cash back booth looks better to you, chase freedom or the largest cashback card? oh, i'll try the largest. oh, that is too bad. apparently you don't know chase freedom guarantees you 1% cash back. 4 times more than the largest cash back card, which only gives you a quarter percent until you spend $3,000 every year. but have fun. bob and weave once you're in there. don't get short changed. get your cash back. chase freedom.

>> jimmy: in a year? probably -- how many do we do in a year guillermo? >> guillermo: 1,100. zwlak that's 2200 opportunities. >> jimmy: we really hit it off great, as you can tell. you don't usually do stuff like that. you keep a very low profile. with your theater, your broadway. >> well, you want to hear about this? you want to do some theater stories. i don't have any. >> jimmy: you must have some. >> i was trying to think of some earlier today. they were all kind of tragic. apparently, that does not play well on the show. >> jimmy: it does sometimes. i take perverse pleasure with that. >> no button, lonely stories? >> i have loads of those. >> jimmy: tell me the worst story you can think of. >> well, actually -- all right. we were doing a play called the pillow man, which was this -- it was this macabre thriller.
you don't see much on broadway. it was about these two brothers and one of the brothers was sort of mentally unstable. and may or may not have committed some atrocities towards some children based upon some stories that the older brother wrote. are you in it so far? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: when you said children, went from quiet to extra quiet. >> i told you. it goes like that. but in the play, i tell these really long kind of terrifying stories. and they're acted out in tableau above me. and during one of the stories one day, right before the intermission, that's big scare that comes. there was a scream from the audience and a man collapsed and had a heart attack. how about that for a button? he lived. he was fine. for a while. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh! >> no, he was fine. i don't know. he was fine. he was fine. i didn't think of bringing any stories. >> jimmy: have you been playing scrabble? you have been preparing? >> we played for a few times.
he contends that words with friends because i live in new york i can't really play scrabble with you -- >> jimmy: words with friends is nonsense. that's for children. that's for 11-year-olds. scrabble is the real game. >> you know me. i have no problem playing scrabble. >> jimmy: people chat on scrabble. >> you have a board? let's go. >> jimmy: the audience will be bored. >> that will light them up. you thought my pillow man story was good. >> jimmy: we played a few times and then the last time we played, which was like a year ago. >> yeah. >> jimmy: you won. and now i feel like you're hiding from me. we will never play again. >> well, leave a winner. i learned a few things back. i'm back now. i'm a few doors down from you. when ever you're ready. >> jimmy: we'll make it interesting. >> thanks against for pronouncing my name correctly. >> jimmy: have you had a problem with that throughout your life? >> no. >> jimmy: because your name, it's crudup. >> well, it turns out it's a
german name and it used to be spelled with anumlout. people don't love umlouts anymore. it's gone. that makes the u instead of crudup. i think it was with a k so maybe it was somebody like crudup. poem don't love that either. i didn't think i would have a problem with it. in fact, i was trying to remember this story earlier, the first agency i was with, the president of the agency called me into her office when i had first signed. and she said, "so, billy, huh?" and i was like, yeah. she's like, you like that? you are going to keep that? and i was like, billy? and she go, yes. well, yeah, i guess. it's kind of -- that's my name. i didn't think -- i mean, it would be weird for me to be something else. she's like yeah. okay. huh. i don't know makes me think of billy carter from the south. all of a sudden -- she had no problem with crudup at all.
somehow billy made her think of drunken brother of the former president. that was going to be a problem in my career. >> jimmy: from 18 years earlier. >> by the way, he had a beer named after him. he did already. >> jimmy: he did well for himself. is he the one that had the heart attack at the show? >> no. thanks for bringing it back to that. it killed before. >> jimmy: i did. you were on -- this is not news to you, but you were on a soap opera when you were in college. >> that's correct. a student-run soap opera created by a man named adam wright. during my first -- >> jimmy: what was it called. >> general college. great. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: off to a good start. >> you have got a fantastic audience. [ cheers and applause ] look at them. they get soap operas, they get puns.
they get student fun. >> jimmy: you know what? i have a gift for our audience. i have a clip from general college here. how old are you in this clip? >> 27. no. i think i was probably 18. i'm not sure which clip it is. >> jimmy: it's a good one. >> they were all good. >> is everything okay with josh? >> yeah, he's still kind of worried about himself. >> so am i. today made me realize just how bad things really are. >> they can be a lot worse. we still have each other. ♪ >> jimmy: what in the world?
